The brands join a growing portfolio represented by Petalfast throughout California and expand its breadth of cannabis products offered nationwide.
“The California cannabis market is fiercely competitive – that’s why we choose to exclusively partner with brands we know can stand out from the pack,” said Jason Vegostky, CEO of Petalfast. “We are proud to work with the teams at Ciencia Labs and VetCBD and look forward to widening their reach through new distribution channels, while also diversifying the offerings for Petalfast’s valued retail partners. Our team’s expertise ensures industry-leading products are well-positioned so consumers can learn about and connect with the best brands.”
Ciencia Labs is a house of science-backed cannabis products for sleep, stress and fun. The startup has been built by founder and Chief Scientific Officer Carolina Vazquez Mitchell, MS. Ciencia’s portfolio includes: dreamt, a sleep-focused brand offering gummies, vapes and tinctures; Quell, an advanced microdose gummy and tincture brand focused on addressing stress; and LUCHADOR, a recreational brand inspired by the founder’s home country of Mexico.
VetCBD offers tinctures in 20:1 CBD:THC (regular strength) and 10:1 CBD:THC (extra strength), designed to support joint mobility, normal brain function, normal GI health and calmness. Founded, formulated and operated by Dr. Tim Shu, VetCBD is dedicated to promoting the education, research and advocacy of the therapeutic benefits of medical cannabis.
The announcements come after Petalfast launched a second selling division to service heightened demand in California’s market, a representation of the increased need for a national distribution partner as many cannabis brands shift from a one-state to a multistate approach. In 2023, Petalfast announced new partnerships in California with American Weed Co., FIND WUNDER, Old Pal, Sip Elixirs, Solis and Yummi Karma.
